I thought I'd just bring that discussion into the Friday Five this week. It's simple. What are five things you would want to do with a million dollar deposit in your bank account?"
First, just let me ask... What does it say about me that I just downloaded the Barenaked Ladies song by this name (If I Had A Million Dollars) as a ringtone for my iPhone?
Ok, here's my play:
First, I would share. What fun would it be to have some extra cash and not be able to spread it around? I would certainly want to give to my church / denomination, local community organizations that do good work, family and friends.
Second, I would save. It would be such a blessing not to have to worry about Ben's college and our retirement needs.
Third, I would buy a house. I wouldn't want anything fancy ~ just a nice, solid place that would build us some equity. Perhaps it could be a vacation house, of sorts, that could double as a future retirement home.
Fourth, I would get a brand new car. Something in red would be nice.
Fifth, I would splurge on an exotic vacation, a pair of Manolo Blahniks, and dinner at Cavey's. Cavey's is a local French restaurant and the word is that you can't dine there for less than $200. I've always wondered what it would be like!
